Fall 2021: Celebrating Our Progress and New Facilities
In 2012, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church began planning for a school renovation and expansion project. In 2014, St. Paul’s established a campaign committee that planned a 2015-2018 campaign called Time to Build that kicked off with leaders and staff in early 2015 and began on a congregation-wide basis on 5/1/2015. At that time we did home visits to deliver and pick up commitment packets. The result was that 369 donors committed just under $1.1 million. Three years later, almost all donors had fulfilled their commitments and the campaign had raised $2.25 million with more than half of this coming from “darkhorse donors.”
The Second Phase
The second phase of the school project campaign began in 5/1/2018 and was called Time to Build. There were no home visits. However, a new campaign booklet was prepared and sent to all our members encouraging them to pick up campaign packets and return commitments. 99 donors committed $400,000 resulting from the effort, and by early March of 2021, members have given just under $4 million with more gifts expected by the end of the campaign.
Now it is Time for Phase 3
It's Time to Partner
… in Unleashing the Collective Power of Small Gifts
… in Embracing the Impact of Major Gifts
“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm 126:3
As a congregation, we have a great opportunity to proclaim our joy as we continue to offer gifts of thanks to the Lord. We are currently in a campaign to pay down our mortgage for the beautiful school project that was finished in January 2020. We encourage all of our families to consider helping us reach our goal of $1.75 million during the next phase of the It’s Time Campaign. Consider a three-year commitment whether it is the combined power of small gifts or an impactful larger gift.
Pray for our congregation and school. Consider how you can also help financially, as we remember what our dear Lord has done for us.
